Hi esiemiat, I have the same question/problem, as our application has shared configuration files, which have to be editable by different users. esiemiat wrote: [...] I know how to change folder and file permission via the install but my question is it OK to change the permissions on a sub-folder of ProgramData so that regular users can write to it? How to you change permission to C:\ProgramData\MyCompany\MyApp, that all users can modify shared files? Do you use 'subinacl' or other technique? Thanks in advance, Tom Btw, there was a discussion on http://blogs.msdn.com/b/cjacks/archive/2008/02/05/where-should-i-write-program-data-instead-of-program-files.aspx?PageIndex=2#comments about the intended file location. Maybe you can pull some information out...

Hi. When installing my application into the C:\Program Files\... directory of Windows 7 (both, 32 and 64 Bit), the desktop and start menu shortcut show the Windows default icon (instead the program's icon). Checking the shortcut's properties: - The path to the executable is correct - Working dir is OK - Icon itself is correctly selected (first icon of the executable). If I manually select the already highlighted icon and save, the icon is shown correctly (after acknowledge of the UAC message). Btw, If I install to C:\AppName\ instead of C:\Program Files (x86)\, everything is fine. How to get the correct icon on Win 7 without manual interaction? Any help is appreciated. Thanks in advance, Tom In case it matters, I still use IS11. The program is installed by Installscript (no MSI).
